Overnight Diapering Solutions

@superundies bed wetter pants night time undies #clothdiapers via @chgdiapers 1

I purchased the pictured items myself. I was not asked to write, nor was I compensated for this post, and all opinions are my own. It’s actually not uncommon for kids to wet the bed until age 8 (sometimes even later.) Each child is different and boys in particular can take a bit longer. Certainly discuss with your doctor, but if medical issues have been eliminated, you have lots of options. You can do bedwetting alarms, waking your child through the night, limiting drinks etc.

We have taken a gentle approach and though we’ve tried several things, our son simply isn’t ready to stay dry every night. As is typical for kids not developmentally ready to stay dry at night, he will stay dry when he doesn’t sleep soundly (like when we are sleeping away from home) but otherwise sleeps right thorough it. Many families use disposable pull ups at night, which are outrageously expensive, and I know my son’s sensitive skin couldn’t handle them (we made the switch to cloth diapers because of this.) In our hope that this would be a temporary issue, we’ve made due with what we had, even using Bumgenius 4.0s with stretched out elastic, and stuffing them to the gills (with varied success – often pants were wet if not the whole bed.) I chatted with the ladies in the Super Undies booth at ABC and ended up ordering a pair of Super Undies nighttime undies. [click to continue reading]

Should You Have Designated Night Time Diapers?

Post contains affiliate links. Night time diapering can be a tricky beast. If your baby is still waking to nurse/bottle feed, you might be changing a diaper at every feeding anyway. If your baby isn’t a heavy wetter, you can perhaps get away with just adding a doubler to a night diaper. For others whose babies sleep longer and/or are heavy wetters, you’ve likely found a solution that keeps baby dry, and you don’t want to stray from it! [click to continue reading]

@GeffenBaby fitted #clothdiapers via @chgdiapers 1

I have been working with Geffen Baby since 2011, and quickly fell in love with their hemp prefolds, absorbers universal inserts and wipes. Their hemp products are 100% USA made, but they also import diaper service quality cotton prefolds. When I heard they were going to be importing 100% cotton fitted diapers, I was curious about them, so as soon as they were available, I bought a few!
